Do You See Me?

Is it alright if I’d ask you one more thing before you go
Do you see me?

I know you’ve got a lot of things on your mind
And I’m almost afraid to ask for your time
But, do you see me, like I see you?

Cos I know you know me
Like you know yourself
Then how come you don’t see me going down?

Could you look me in the eye and say that you read me
Loud and clear, as I can see you now?

There was a time when I didn’t need to
Well haven’t you seen me or noticed me lately
I’ve been trying to reach you but, I couldn’t get thru

While my whole world came crashing
Down and around me
I needed you to get me out of the ruins

Well haven’t you heard me standing beside you
Shouting my heart out, but you were miles away

While the ground was above me and no one below me
I was calling out, calling out your name
Baby haven’t you seen me?

Well haven’t you seen me turn into something
That is only a distant reflection of me

Didn’t you see me changing? What happened baby
You used to know me by heart and by soul

Well haven’t you noticed I’ve been trying to hold on
To something that’s missing and probably gone

I just want you to see me, not like I’ve been lately
But as the one that could set you on fire

That’s how I’d like you to see me
Haven’t you seen me lately
How do you see me?
